After reading all the positive reviews here my friend and I were looking forward to our stay at Volcano Lodge. Unfortunately, I can't say that we had the same great experience. Before I get to the problems I will say that the staff in the restaurant were incredibly nice, welcoming, and helpful, truly lovely people. Also the free breakfast was... More

I stayed one night and it was relaxing. The room has one of the best views in Costa Rica and it was economic. I would love to go back and stay for a long time. The breakfast was good, and the fruits were great. Pura Vida.

A tip to start of with that a local told us is that this place used to be called Volcano Lodge and Gardens before the Springs were added; may help when looking at maps not updated or GPS searches. This place was perfect and exceeded our expectations for the price we paid (about $94USD/night). Staff was always friendly and bi-lingual... More

We really enjoyed this place. Our second trip to arenal, this was an awesome pool and restaurant. Some of best service we had in Costa Rica. The food was wonderful. Rooms were large and had everything you needed. Walls are a little thin, so be prepared to hear your neighbors.

This is a great place the only problem is that we did not see the Volcano during our stay. The clouds and fog cleared a little so we could see the base but could not see the top. There are may activities here in La Fortuna including zip lining, Caves rain forest hanging bridges etc. The beds are a little... More

The Volcano Lodge was the only place we stayed in Costa Rica that felt like a resort that could’ve been anywhere in the world. It was also the only place that felt like there was a clear separation between the guests and the staff . . . it didn’t feel like the kind of place where you could get to... More

Stayed here 4 nights while visiting the Arenal area. Really good location for the volcano and national park, with lots to do in the area. Grounds were very nice and well maintained. Staff was excellent and very helpful with advice for things to do. The room was good...nothing spectacular, but nice and clean and the daily towel arrangement was really... More

We only stayed here for 1 night, in April 2014 with 2 adults and 2 children aged 9 and 12. We really enjoyed the hot springs and found them to be very clean and relaxing after our horse ride to La Fortuna waterfall. There are several pools around the grounds, some hot, some not, some busy, some quiet and some... More

We just got back from Costa Rica - spent 3 nights at this hotel. Breakfast was great, the pool & hot tub and drink selections were great. Dinner could have had more variety. The daily towel creations on our bed was a special touch that thrilled our little girl. All in all a place to definitely visit again.

We absolutely loved this place! They have hot springs to enjoy and great customer service. Not to mention the flowing river behind our room. The people are lovely and everyone seems to care about your happiness. The restaurant has free breakfast for guests every morning which is a delicious plus. 😊
